It’s in the Title: American Horror Story

Let’s just get this out of the way, American Horror Story is great. Honestly, the amount of conversations and thoughts about this show could fill not just one book, but several. It’s a complete wonderment, and should be up there with the best made, and most unique things we’ve ever seen come to the small screen. It’s the complete package: phenomenally written; dynamic and memorable characters; great dialogue; well shot; fantastic actors, and to top it all off, it changes its format and setting every season, giving us new characters to love and hate in various places and periods, which means that it never goes stale.

The Ten Best Moments from ‘Battle of the Bastards’

No matter how you’ve been feeling about Game of Throne’s sixth season, no one can deny the gravity of just how awesome it’s ninth episode was. One could argue that it was not only the best episode of the show so far, but also one of the best things ever to be aired on our television screens or to be streamed (naughty naughty) ever!

Justice is Coming: GOT

One of the truest statements that could ever be said about Game of Thrones is its constant handouts of injustice. We’ve seen the good die horribly, and the evil thrive; we’ve watched as characters walk into the televised world of Westeros, bringing with them hope that we may see actions or events that will make our heart’s fill with joy, only for the same characters to be killed off horribly, leaving our hearts, once again, a wreck. The list is long, and continues to grow as each episode passes, especially this season (RIP Doran, Hotah, Osha, Shaggydog, Summer & the greatest hero that ever lived, Hodor).

GOT: Books vs Show, what the show got right.

Firstly, I just need to get this out the way from the batting line: after watching the first episode of the new season, I was feeling a little uneasy on where the show was going to take us. It was a slow opener, with choices made I didn’t completely agree with (see Dorne rant post) and it just kind of underwhelmed me – what can you expect though eh? It was only the first episode after all, and it has the fun task of setting up the season, so nothing all that exciting could happen. Continue reading “GOT: Books vs Show, what the show got right.”

The Biggest Mistake of ‘The Red Woman’

Well, now that we’ve all had a chance to cool down from the season 6 premier of Game of Thrones, it’s about time we all sat down and discussed. A lot of the cliffhangers we were left with at the end of season 5 have been resolved, while also presenting new questions – obviously getting me and the rest of the thronies even more hyped.
